Adult Aftercare Program

Addiction is chronic, and recovery from addiction requires ongoing support and commitment to sobriety. For most, aftercare is necessary to maintain sobriety in early recovery. At The Refinery, we offer several aftercare groups to help support your recovery. Call us to schedule an intake session during which we will assess your needs and collaboratively develop an aftercare plan that best suits you. In addition to groups, The Refinery offers individual and family therapy as well!
